like to thank the judges and the committee members for giving this award to us. and we would also like to thank the person who nominated us for this award. he is a very generous gentleman who donated his bone marrow to one of our patients. the donor program is a 20-year-old nonprofit organization that helps leukemia and other blood cancer patients to find their bone marrow matches. over the past 20 years we have recruited over 130,000 donors. it seems like a big number, but it is not enough. in the registry in the united states there are seven million registered don't years, and only 7% is asian american. because bone marrow is matched based on ethnicity, it is difficult for asian americans to find a match. if you haven't registered as a donor yet. take five minutes to do so. all you need to do is fill out a form and give a cheek swab sample. you don't even need to give blood. if your cheek sample matches, we will do another test to make sure you are the best match. so please take five minutes of your time and register today. we will continue our efforts to serve the community. thank y
